Kathy Mattea – Nothing But A Child lyrics
Once upon a time
In a far off land
Wise men saw a sign
And set out 'cross the sand
Songs of praise to sing
They travelled day and night
Precious gifts to bring
They were guided by the light

They chased a brand new star
Ever towards the west
Across the mountains far
But when it came to rest
They scarce believed their eyes
They'd come so many miles
The miracle they prized
Was nothing but a child

Nothing but a child
Could wash those tears away
Or guide a weary world
Into the light of day
Nothing but a child
Could help erase those miles
So once again we all
Can be children for a while

Now all around the world
In every little town
Every day is heard
A precious little sound
And every mother kind
And every father, proud
Looks down in awe to fiund
Another chance allowed

Nothing but a child
Could wash those tears away
Or guide a weary world
Into the light of day
Nothing but a child
Could help erase those miles
So once again we all
Can be children for a while

Nothing but a little baby
Nothing but a little baby
Nothing but a child
